24 SQUASH The weekend after the Symposium ERSA MRT Colin Pummell and I got together for the Advanced Squash Patterns Workshop in Hereford, England. Colin was already an active squash stringer as well as a busy tennis stringer, he is also both a tennis and squash coach. Just like the guys in the Symposium, the week before, he strung racket after racket all day long, the next day we looked at preparation for the Squash PTS level 1 test and had some practice at the speed test and cus- tomising test. Then Colin passed the test in the afternoon with a great performance in each of the tasks, before heading home with a smile on his face!
